Nearly 300 Recipes that Feature the Healthiest Foods from around the World
Chef and author Grace O has traveled the world in search of delicious, good-for-you foods. Her passion for discovering food treasures from the Blue Zones and elsewhere, where people live longer, healthier lives, is the driving force behind FoodTrients.com and her new cookbook, Age-Defying Dishes of the World.
In her third cookbook, Grace O delivers all the hallmarks of her two previous award-winning cookbooks, and more. In addition to over 200 easy-to-make recipes using everyday favorites, exotic ingredients, and superfoods from around the world, Age-Defying Dishes of the World includes healthy resources, helpful guides, and tips for improving your lifespan and "health-span."
Grace O’s global approach to her age-fighting recipes ramps up the flavor profiles of each dish to entice food lovers everywhere. She takes classic recipes and gives them international twists with a few simple steps, creating very interesting meals. For example, people will love her global take on chicken soup with recipes developed with Chinese, French, Greek, Middle Eastern, Mexican, and Indian variations. She does the same thing with basic sauces, pesto, main dishes, pastas, and bowls, and includes recipes with African, Southeast Asian, Latin American, Polynesian, Scandinavian, European, and Australian ingredients.
The book also features guides to key herbs and spices from around the globe, and to the top 50 foods for longevity, healthy sweeteners, cooking oils, ancient grains, and more.
All proceeds from Age-Defying Dishes of the World will be donated to the Grace O Foundation, which supports educating the public about nutrition, working with other food-based non-profits, and participating in research that explores food and the diseases of aging.

About the Author
Read an Excerpt
My life has been devoted to my two passions—great food and wellness. I have traveled the world in search of foods that can help us age better, and I love discovering food treasures from the Blue Zones and places beyond, where people live longer, healthier lives.
This is the driving force behind FoodTrients.com and my third and newest cookbook, Anti-Aging Dishes from Around the World: Recipes to Boost Immunity, Improve Skin, Promote Longevity, Lower Inflammation, and Detoxify. With more than thirty-five years of experience running restaurants, operating senior healthcare facilities, and studying the healing properties of foods, I’ve written this book to share what I’ve learned with you.
Anti-Aging Dishes from Around the World has all the hallmarks of my two previous age-defying cookbooks, plus much more. In addition to over 250 delicious, easy-to-make recipes using everyday and exotic superfoods from around the world, this new book includes a wealth of resources for healthy eating and research-based tips for improving your lifespan and “healthspan.”
For the curious epicurean
If you’re curious about the top 50 foods for longevity or want to know the difference between prebiotics and probiotics, which cooking oils are best to use, which salts are healthier, what teas can help you calm down, energize, or help fight the flu, it’s all here for you. You’ll also find helpful guides—to the key herbs and spices around the globe, healthy sweeteners, healing teas, alternative flours and grains, and others.
Anti-Aging Dishes from Around the World has been years in the making. For this cookbook, I searched for even more ways to incorporate the best nutrients into mouth-watering dishes that promote health and beauty. The result is a variety of new ingredients, age-fighting recipes, and some new enticements for food lovers who demand great-tasting dishes with superior health benefits.
I’ve taken a number of classic recipes and given them international twists with simple steps that create more interesting meals. For example, I think you’ll love my global take on chicken soup, with Asian, French, Greek, Middle Eastern, Mexican, and Indian recipe variations. I also do the same with basic sauces, aiolis, and pestos, pastas and bowls, cookies and pies, and more. My recipes also use superfoods and spice profiles from Africa, Asia, Latin America, Polynesia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, India, Mexico, Russia, Scandinavia, and the United States.
Regardless of their global influences, all the recipes in this cookbook are based on the principles of FoodTrients, a collection of nourishing ingredients that promote health, well-being, and longevity. From specific foods to herbs and spices, these essential ingredients support youthfulness, help prevent the diseases of aging, and increase energy and vitality.
